What Affects the Cost of Legal Fees?
In Arizona the cost of attorney fees is normally directly related to the value of the case.
Most lawyers charge a percentage fee based on how much money they win for their clients. You can use our attorney fees calculator to see exactly how much you will owe us once you win your settlement.
At Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm, our fees are a share of your settlement amount, so if we win you a larger settlement then our share is worth more as well. It’s important to know that we do not collect any money until you win.
The percentage share itself is based on whether your case is settled out of court or proceeds to litigation.
- If your case is settled without litigation, our attorney fees are 33% of your settlement amount
- If your case goes to court, our attorney fees are 40% of your settlement amount
For example, if your case settled for $100,000 out of court, our legal costs would be $33,000.
You can use our attorney fees calculator to estimate how much your fees might be by entering different settlement amounts.

Are There Any Other Costs to Pay?
Yes, there are sometimes extra costs that you’ll have to pay if you bring a case to court, they can include things like court filing fees and other advanced court costs.
These are usually paid by your solicitor while they are representing you, and then need to be paid at the end of proceedings.
We only ever recommend proceeding to litigation if we are confident that there is a good chance of being successful. Of course, we will advise you on the best course of action if we represent you.
When Do You Have to Pay Your Legal Fees?
Any fees you owe don’t need to be paid until your case concludes and are usually taken from your settlement amount.
This means you don’t need to pay anything until you’ve received your compensation amount.
Is there any way to be charged more than the settlement?
No, if you ask Phoenix Accident and Injury Law to take on your case there is no way your fees could exceed your settlement amount.
This is because we take a share of your settlement, either 33% or 40% depending on whether your case has required litigation.
This means after our costs are deducted that the rest of the settlement amount is yours.
